About Patrick


Bio

Ever since my college years, I wanted to be a teacher. But, life took me in a different direction. I became an Electronics Engineer, working at Silicon Valley on chip and system designs for the last 35+ years. Now I am retired. For the past several years I started to fulfill my dream as a teacher/tutor.

I am fortunate to have many nieces, nephews, and friends’ children around me, most of them are Monta Vista High graduates. My past tutoring experiences were from the tutoring I provided to...

Ever since my college years, I wanted to be a teacher. But, life took me in a different direction. I became an Electronics Engineer, working at Silicon Valley on chip and system designs for the last 35+ years. Now I am retired. For the past several years I started to fulfill my dream as a teacher/tutor.

I am fortunate to have many nieces, nephews, and friends’ children around me, most of them are Monta Vista High graduates. My past tutoring experiences were from the tutoring I provided to them while they grew up. During the past few years, I have been tutoring high school and JC college students. When I see they improve in their study, it brings me joy.

I have a MA degree in Math and a MSEE degree in Electronics Engineer. I speak both English and Mandarin Chinese. The subjects that I tutor include elementary and high school Algebra(Algebra I & II), Trigonometry, pre-Calculus, and Single Variable Calculus. I am a patient and caring tutor, always trying to use different methods or views to make students understand a subject. Providing real world examples is another good way to make them interested in the subject.

Recently, I have started tutoring ACT Math&Science and SAT at a local College Prep Tutoring center. I feel joy to have helped many students in their preparation for College/University.

Electronics Hardware is my profession. I love to have the opportunity to guide younger generations toward a bright future.

Amazing tutor; patient and caring

Patrick has been an exceptional tutor to a very picky student. He has zen-like patience and the ability to stick with even the toughest students. Patrick has been helping us for nearly a year and we can't live without him. Thank you Patrick for all you've done for us. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone.

Great tutor

Patrick is helping my son with 10th grade maths. I find Patrick to be extremely patient. He understood my son's weakness and worked towards fixing them. Patrick is very flexible and is open towards working around our schedule.
